New in PDF SDK 8.0

Brand new SDK for Web demo

This release comes with a brand new Web SDK demo which contains a guided walkthrough of our SDK and its latest features.

Advanced Collaboration Capabilities

In our previous release, we launched a PDF collaboration feature where you could have multiple instances of a PDF viewer with real time collaboration on a document. Since then, we’ve been working hard on upgrading this feature and you can now control access and permissions of PDFs, disable particular functionality and use toolbar buttons to give you more control over your work environments.

High Contrast Support & Text-to-Speech Tool

Accessibility was a big focus for this release and we have added two new features to this effect. High contrast support enables you to offer a better viewing experience as it makes reading easier on a device. The Text-to-speech tool converts any written text in a PDF to spoken word, again making life easier for those hard of hearing or those who prefer to listen instead of reading.

Advanced Form Functionality

Forms are always a big focus and we’ve added additional widget support, new form field option controls, and more advanced forms. We’ve also added XFA support to our SDK to give you more control over your forms and workflows.
